Last year in the Dolphins draft room, Stephen Ross inquired about trading down in the first round to acquire more picks. Chris Grier ended up drafting a stud in Minkah Fitzpatrick and that was the end of that story. Fast forward to now and the team is in the process of stockpiling draft picks and rebuilding. It all depends on how the draft plays out, but it’s looking more likely the Dolphins won’t be drafting at 13. However, if one of the top quarterbacks falls, like Dwayne Haskins, the team could just pull the trigger then and there.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
